“If you were totally courageous and completely fearless, how would you feel? What action would you take?” If you can imagine being that brave, you can call up the strength to do it. That’s Ken Jacobs’ approach with his business where he is coaching entrepreneurs to scale their businesses.

Ken has been coaching agency entrepreneurs and leaders for more than 10 years. What’s at the root of every growth challenge? Leadership.

In this episode, Ken shares common challenges and how to rise above the day-to-day fray to build a leadership legacy that reflects who you want to be in business.

Listen out for Ken’s approach to coaching entrepreneurs to scale their businesses and his take on –

  • why Ken has his own coach
  • listening to your team to set your goals
  • why a box-checking to-do list focus is bad for business
  • why focusing on “avoiding” something may lead your straight to it
  • how to make decisions based on the legacy you want to leave
  • the Energy Leadership Index and how a certification changed Ken’s coaching strategy, and his energy
  • why you should stop resisting your expertise

And you might just learn when to call upon your inner Sasha Fierce. 😉
